Carroll: RB Thomas Rawls ready for increased workload

ESPN - [Full Article]

During his weekly appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle, HC Pete Carroll said that Christine Michael earned the right to start in Week 1, but he noted that Thomas Rawls is ready for an increased workload.

Fantasy Impact: 

Michael played 52 snaps to Rawls 22. Michael was better in the run game with 4.4 YPC to Rawls' 2.7. But Rawls was better in the passing game, which is worth noting with C.J. Prosise a bit banged up. The Russell Wilson injury likely means both backs have a significant role in Week 2 but this time there may be a bit more balance to the snaps.
